This stretch of beaches looks like a continuous line of high cliffs where red and ochre tones are alternated with lighter colours, an abundance of maritime fossils.

To arrive to the Careanos sandy are, you have to go through a steep ladder which seems to end in the remainings of a cave. In the sandy zone, caves and rocky entrances succeed one another, especially in the occidental part, where there are an enormous cave and a rock with a natural arch, which remains a little fortress.
